Swipe Bids Complaint - The biggest scam ever

Review by chanel2010 on 2010-07-04
I Had the same exact experience as the previous consumer. I got an e-mail about how people bought the new ipad for pennies from this ??? government auction site. They asked for my information which I filled out and my credit card number which I thought that if I won they needed that, never knew they will charge it $150 abou 50 cents a bid ..no contract..no terms. To my surprise they charged immediately my credit card $150 which I couldn't stop and I have to fill papers and file complaints to be able to get my money back. Biggest scam and very clever fraud..BEWARE!!!!!

It's really a sad thing when so many gullible people read an email from God Knows where with all kinds of enticing claims, then WILLINGLY, without question, give them their valuable credit information. Never, Ever respond to an unsolicited email, no matter what they promise. Did you NOT know this already???

Not to be too hard on you, OP, but charlie is right. Consider this a lesson learned the hard way. I'm sure you will never give out your credit card info again. I hope you do whatever is necessary to get your money back, even if it takes some time.

Even the government can't afford to sell iPads for "pennies." If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. You were fooled.
